"i think somebody once complained about donna too."

Yeah, me and everyone else during her "Playin'" wailing and several other songs. She sounds like she's trying to do the filler background vocals on The Stones "Gimme Shelter".

Donna shrieked a lot in 72-74. But post-hiatus she was more often angelic in her vocal styling than not.

And even though she may have shrieked like a rabbit falling prey to a coyote in the N. Michigan woods during many PITB, I still like her.

And judging from the audience tapes I've heard pre-hiatus, the audience also liked it. Notice the eruption of applause right when she begins to howl?

As far as the collective mental state of the forum readers, I can only speak for myself and I will say that I procrastinate doing homework or skip school and end up spending a good chunk of time daily to read all your nutty ramblings. Thanks for the laughs guys :)
